Parked on a inclined driveway so I went 2 release da car from park into 2 reverse n the shift won't move at all please help me


Sounds to me like there is too much weight on the "park" gear. Have someone push the car forward a little bit, and do it gently, to release some of the pressure on the transmission, and it should shift from Park without a problem. I highly recommend if parking on an inclined driveway, or any hill, to use the parking brake if it is possible to do so. Good Luck

Shifting Out of Park Position


hi..

spaclear.gif A simple procedure to prevent being jammed in PARK on a grade:
  1. Do not put it in PARK until, with foot brake applied, you've secured the parking (emergency) brake.


  2. Before releasing the parking brake, apply the foot brake and move the shift lever to NEUTRAL or DRIVE.

your problem lies in the internal parts of your transmission which are the clutch linings, they are already worn out and starts to slide.

My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park to reverse. I had backed out the car and turned it off. when I went to move the car, my gear shift will not move out of the park position.


do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

When i start my car and press the brake to shift out of park it sticks and wont move. i have and automatic 1998 cadilac catera


HI, there is a solenoid(switch) that's located in shift linkage housing that works in conjunctions with the brake pedal when you shift from park to reverse or drive. this is a safety situation.

Sometimes, this solenoid(switch) can malfunction or die. In this case, it will prevent the gear shift lever from moving into the reverse or parked position. Simply replacing this shift lever solenoid will fix this issue. You can expose the solenoid by disassembling the shift stick housing,

Please rate and have a great day:)

Have you checked your transmission fluid level?

98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse


Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.
